Oklahoma State Rep. Sally Kern met with the folks from Oklahoma City PFLAG on Thursday. According to PFLAG represenatives, Kern didn’t apologize for her now-legendary anti-gay tirade, and they didn’t ask her to. “What we said to her was that we were coming in a spirit of healing and reconciliation and we just wanted to talk and speak heart-to-heart,” a PFLAG rep told The Oklahoman.
Later Thursday, Kern spoke during a College Republicans event at the University of Central Oklahoma.“If I knew it was being recorded, I’d still say the same thing,â€ Kern told the College Republicans. “I will not back down from what I believe the Bible teaches.â€
I don’t know about you, but I have to question why PFLAG is even bothering to meet with this person. In Kern’s tirade, she said gays pose a bigger threat to the U.S. than terrorists. So let me draw a comparison of my own here: An LGBT equality group sitting down to meet with Sally Kern is the equivalent of U.S. ambassadors sitting down for a nice friendly chat with Osama bin Laden. I’m all for changing hearts and minds, but I’m not sure Kern possesses either.
